Committed to improving patients' quality of life
The Division of Palliative Medicine team focuses on the many ways serious illness affects patients and their families. The goal of the team is to enhance the patient's quality of life by maximizing physical comfort, preventing or alleviating suffering and providing psychological and spiritual support.
